I'd love for you to meet Joanna Votilla and her wonderful new shop.

I stopped in last night for a celebratory cocktail. Christoper Filley and Rich Hoffman, whose shop is just up the block, had been by earlier and left their encouragement by way of this charming note attached to the door.  

Joanna has taken over the front portion of Suzanne Cooper's spot at 45th & State Line.

Her artfully selected pieces have plenty of room to preen in their new home.

Joanna has had a spot at Mission Road Antique Mall for a while.  If you haunt their halls her aesthetic may look familiar to you.

It's as if a new baby has been born in the neighborhood.

The other dealers are thrilled to have a new kid on the block.

Joanna is open today.  If you have a moment do pop in. 

Don't be surprised if you've missed a few treasures.

These chests were already on hold and I was right on time.  You know, the good stuff goes fast.  But I think Joanna's here to stay.
